A bridal magazine has announced it will close just months after it sparked outrage for refusing to feature same-sex weddings.
Founders Luke and Carla Burrell, who are Christians, announced they would close White Magazine on Saturday after advertisers withdrew sponsorship.
A farewell note published on White Magazine's website on Saturday said the couple had recently experienced 'a flood of judgement' and lost a number of advertisers.
The Burrells became target of an intimidation campaign in which their staff were threatened and one individual warned their house would be burned down.
'We have had to recognise the reality that White Magazine is no longer economically viable,' their online post said.
The couple said they started the magazine twelve years ago to tell a different kind of story about marriage and deter from commercialised weddings.
They said after the Australian law was changed to allow same-sex couples to marry they were repeatedly asked why the magazine didn't feature 'all couples'.
'White Magazine has always been a secular publication, but as its publishers, we are Christian. We have no agenda but to love,' the farewell note stated.
'We have no desire to create a social, political or legal war, which only divides people further and does more damage than good.'
The couple said, as a result of a 'flood of judgement', a number of advertisers withdrew sponsorship, which had a negative financial impact on the business.
'A campaign was launched targeting the magazine, our team and our advertisers.
'Couples who have featured in our magazine have also been the subject of online abuse despite their individual beliefs. Were really saddened by this.
'The result has been that a number of advertisers withdrew their sponsorship out of fear of being judged, or in protest,' the message said.

and there was a time not too long ago when some idiots on here said they had no problem with civil unions since it is their private business. On the other hand some of us pointed out how civil unions was their first step to infringe on religious freedom.
Now where are the idiots who said it is their private business/
Once again the tyranny of the minority prevails.
If the homosexual mafia isn’t the Mark of the Beast itself, all things lgbtq are certainly part and parcel of it.
“Ye cannot buy or sell lest you have the mark of the beast”, as outlined in the Good Book.
You can stand on the side of God, or the side of the world. You cannot do both.
Never hire a queer or anyone that even remotely seems queer.
OT but related.....so man posters say..."let Catholic priest marry".....can you imagine the Church being forced to allow homosexual priest to marry their studs.....
Revelation 13:17: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
satan is using perversion to make slaves of us all..
“..can you imagine the Church being forced to allow homosexual priest to marry their studs..... “
Can you imagine an hereditary papacy?
Now that is scary
Time is up.
The Rainbow Shirt fascists are coming!
Some peoples wants should never triumph over other people’s Constitutional rights.
When people reject God, He leaves them to their own ways. Here’s what’s up next:
School has SEVENTEEN children changing gender as teacher says vulnerable pupils are being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex
The Mail On Sunday reveals that 17 pupils are in the process of changing gender
Most of children undergoing transformation are autistic according to teacher
This means that 150 autistic teenagers were issued with puberty blocker drugs
Keep on voting for Theresa May and the Conservative Party, they’ll take care of it.....sarc.
Child abuse at the most perverted level. End of life punishment for these enabling adults cannot be enough.
It really is time to start doing “something” about these freaks and their enablers / protectors. I’ll leave the “something” to your imagination.
Yep. When the Supreme Court redefined marriage for them there were those who thought that would be the end of it. Not a chance. It was just the beginning. Nothing will ever make them happy. They will continue to find ways to lash out in rage at normal people no matter how many fights they win.
